Home movie in two parts. The first, in color, is an impressionistic picture of buildings, streets and people in downtown Detroit, Michigan, presumably shot around 1962. The second, in black and white, shows scenes shot around the 200th anniversary celebration of the city of Detroit, 1951.

Detroit's 250th birthday
The downtown shots were taken during the celebration of Detroit's 250th birthday in 1951. Photographer used a telephoto lens exclusively which detracts from what otherwise would be interesting scenery of that era.
